Congrats teekay, Cory and Sibil. Nicely done (teekay, you live in a very beautiful area!).
And thanks, Maureen, for judging this week and for being a real trooper.
Sounds like you could use a nice spa treatment asap! :-)

Congratulations to teekay, Cory and Sibil and thanks Maureen for a fun challenge. Great entries this week. You might re-title this challenge as "Food v. Nature" and Nature has won hands down :-)

I hope you are rested up from Disneyland? I hear you on being worn out...here is a shot of Elaine and I from three weeks ago after 10 hours at Universal Studios Theme Park with our Grandson and Great Grand Son and their parents  :p

Thanks for the third place. There are many things technically wrong with my shot, so I am surprised by the nod. Congrats to all the winners.

Thanks, Maureen! Really didn't expect to win this week with all the tasty entries and particularly Trumper's seaside shot (where was it taken?).

My ISP has been down the past couple of days so I'm running behind, but will get a new challenge up later today.

P.S. New challenge now posted - be careful!
